Release 0.26: branching
Mon Nov 9 16:27:00 GMT 2015
there was a lot of work on binutils recently (nice!).
Previously, I tried to find a period of calm to create
a release branch, but I wasn’t able to this year.
So, how to process ? Is it reasonable to ask developers to
be quiet ? From my experience, it doesn’t work very well
because we all want to push our new features in the next
release, so instead of being quiet developers hurry up.
I could also create a branch from a past point, but all
the bug fixes won’t be in the new release, so there would
be additional backport work.
So, this is just a call for avoiding submitting new
features, just to aim at a new release.
